Incubation, where to start?

I’m looking to buy/build an incubator for ball pythons. Any ideas on incubators where you don’t have to open them to check? Any tips? Possibly links or picture to your guys build and buys would be awesome!

Cserpents incubators are pretty nice. They have acrylic doors, along with a light you can switch on and off so you can check on the eggs without actually opening the incubator. They come in different sizes so you can buy whatever size works best for you, plus they come with a VE-200 thermostat so you don’t even have to worry about buying one separately.

Here’s a screenshot of the one I got. It’s the smallest one at 24" tall, the biggest one they have is 60" tall.

I’m not really a do-it-yourselfer so I try to buy stuff that’s already made, but hopefully someone else can give you tips on how to build one that fits what you want.


We where lucky to find a wine cooler very cheep. It was easy to convert. Luckily it is duel zone, so we can use half if needed. Using a 2 zone herpstat. We can remove every other shelf to fit the boxes in. Using target 6 cup containers.
